Euphemism for "ball" curry - Meatball curry - a staple in many Anglo-Indian homes, usually served for Sunday lunch, accompanied by coconut rice, doll (lentils). Dessert is invariably caramel custard. The table is set with rose-pattern china (giving off the faint whiff of egg), spoon and fork and knife and "steel tumblers" (glasses for water).
